Lesson of the Week: Doug Luce

This is another example of the classic swing pattern that sees the right arm drop either straight down or, in this case, backwards behind the right side while the lower body drives up and under toward the ball, causing the right arm to approach in such a manner that a solid, forward leaning impact is […]

Swing Analysis: Bubba Watson and Paul Casey

Here we have two excellent players with very different pivot movements in transition. We see them on the 16th at Doral, teeing off with a pitching wedge or 9 iron. Bubba hits an inexplicable draw over the water to about 6 feet while Casey hits a non-descript shot to the center of the green somewhere […]

Online Students: Rick James Part 2

The first thing you notice about Rick’s swing is the similarities in body type, set-up, and swing rhythm to Ben Hogan. Upon further inspection, however, we find a big difference in the pivot motion, one which, because of its importance to the swing, is enough of a problem to keep Rick from hitting the ball […]

Online Students: John Lamendola Part 3

This video is a good example of how I brainstorm these things and try to come up with root causes of the chronic issues and ways to beat the problem. The good news here is that after trying this suggestion John reported in that his hand path changed for the better almost immediately, the results […]
